The Huskies and the Orange travel to Madison Square Gardens for a big non conference showdown between two teams with a lot of history.
These two former Big East rivals look to renew their rivalry.
Syracuse looks to continue a decent start to the season, well UCONN desperately needs a non conference win that could go along way in getting this young team so confidence.
The Huskies are off to to their worst start under head coach Kevin Ollie.
